It raised more intense feelings than I had expected, like being engulfed in a storm of lightning."

Jeg trodde jeg skulle bli et helere menneske ved å fylle ut tomrommene i meg. Det omvendte var tilfelle. Jo mer jeg fylte på, desto tommere ble jeg, alt jeg tok inn hulte meg ut, og alt jeg kastet opp tynget meg mer og mer. Enda en gang visste jeg: Det er for mye innhold i verden. Verden trekker deg ned. Det er ikke plass i et menneske, i et enkelt menneske, til alt dette. Jeg lengtet etter overflater. Jeg lengtet etter en eske som jeg kunne legge alt i. Men verden er som sagt påtrengende og ublu. Verden gir seg ikke med det første."
Author: Lars Saabye Christensen

"Before we go pick up poor Lieutenant Illyan again..." He took her in his arms, and they kissed, for the first time, for a long time. "Oh," she muttered after. "Perhaps that was a mistake. It hurts so much when you stop." "Well, let me..." his hand stroked her hair, gently, then desperately wrapped itself in a shimmering coil; they kissed again."
Author: Lois McMaster Bujold

Author: Louise Erdrich
23. "Mint amikor az ember magányosan vezeti át az éjszakát, és közben olyan, mintha egy egész élet telne el. Óránként 110 kilométeres sebességnél az országút elsuhanó szaggatott vonal felfestését figyelve a szeme elfárad, az agya elkalandozik, egy teljes élet emlékei között bolyong – múlt és jövo, a korai emlékektol a saját halálának gondolatáig-, és egy ido után a muszerfal órája elveszti jelentését. Aztán, amikor napfelkeltekor célba ér, maga az utazás már nem tunik olyan valóságosnak, mert a szürreális érzés eltunik, és az ido újra jelentéssel bír."
Author: Matthew Quick
24. "Darkness I find myself set upon a ship of fools and cast adrift.Adrift in sea of madness, steaming towards a storm of uncertainty. Overboard, swirling, twirling tumbling.Engulfed in madness. Shipwrecked, marooned. Washed upon a rock of hope. Darkness surrounds. Within the darkness madness laps upon a distant shore. Morning breaks and sun rises once more.Darkness retreats into the shadows. Golden rays of light cleanse the mind and soul. A new day dawns heralding sanity, and hopefor the human race once more."
Author: Michael Tianias

26. "They could not help loving anything that made them laugh. The Lisbon earthquake was "embarrassing to the physicists and humiliating to theologians" (Barbier). It robbed Voltaire of his optimism. In the huge waves which engulfed the town, in the chasms which opened underneath it, in volcanic flames which raged for days in the outskirts, some 50,000 people perished. But to the courtiers of Louis XV it was an enormous joke. M. de Baschi, Madame de Pompadour's brother-in-law, was French Ambassador there at the time. He saw the Spanish Ambassador killed by the arms of Spain, which toppled onto his head from the portico of his embassy; Baschi then dashed into the house and rescued his colleague's little boy whom he took, with his own family, to the country. When he got back to Versailles he kept the whole Court in roars of laughter for a week with his account of it all. "Have you heard Baschi on the earthquake?"
Author: Nancy Mitford

Author: Roger Williams

43. "Quote from BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN – pgs. 86 -87 "A Kiss":I went to snatch my hand away, but Trent caught my hand in his, startling me. I looked up to see warmth on his face. His smile held the promise of happiness. He scooted closer and held my gaze for a breath, glanced down. He leaned forward, as if he had no control over his actions. I inhaled his nice, soapy-clean scent, and all coherent thought left my head.His hands gripped my waist and Trent yanked me against him, his mouth covering mine in a deep kiss. The caress of his lips was softer than I'd imagined. An unfamiliar rush of excitement engulfed my senses. My hands wrapped around his neck, fingering his silky tousled hair. His moist lips seared a path from my lips to my neck, igniting a blaze of desire that flooded my skin everywhere his lips and roaming hands touched. Boys had kissed me before, but not like this. Never like this..."
Author: Sherry Soule
44. "Americans believe if you go to college, you have something to fall back on, which makes sense. I don't have any degrees. If I hadn't become a golfer, I have no idea what I would be doing with my life."
Author: Stuart Appleby
45. "I used unexpectedly to experience a consciousness of the presence of God, or such a kind that I could not possibly doubt that He was within me or that I was wholly engulfed in Him. This was in no sense a vision: I believe it is called mystical theology. The soul is suspended in such a way that it seems to be completely outside itself. The will loves; the memory, I think, is almost lost; while the understanding, I believe, thought it is not lost, does not reason—I mean that it does not work, but is amazed at the extent of all it can understand; for God wills it to realize that it understands nothing of what His Majesty represents to it."
Author: Teresa Of Ávila
46. "But as Derek watched himself holding Ginger in the mirror over the sink, her smaller, trembling body engulfed by his naked arms and chest, he felt the furthest thing from unaffected.

Author: Tessa Bailey
47. "Beyler," dedi, "gidip su kulübeyi ölçmenizi rica ediyorum. Tezgahin uzunlugunun 149 santimetre oldugunu göreceksiniz, yani Dünya ile Günes arasindaki uzakligin yüz milyarda biri. Kulübenin arka tarafinin yüksekligini, pencerelerin genisligine bölerseniz 176:56=3,14 çikar. Ön tarafin yüksekligi 19 desimetredir; bu da, Yunan aydönümü yillarinin sayisina esittir. Iki ön kösenin yüksekligi ile iki arka kösenin yüksekliginin toplami ise (190x2)+(176x2)=732'dir; bu da Poitiers zaferinin tarihidir. Tezgahin kalinligi 3,10 santimetre, pencerenin kornisinin genisligi ise 8,8 santimetredir. Tam sayilarin yerine onlara denk düsen alfebe harflerini (3 yerine C, 8 yerine H) koyarsak, C10H8'i elde ederiz. Bu da naftalinin formülüdür.""Olaganüstü!" dedim, "Bütün bu ölçümleri yaptiniz mi?""Hayir," dedi Aglié, "Jean-Pierre Adam diye biri, baska bir kulübe üstünde yapti. Sanirim piyango bileti satilan kulübelerin boyutlari az çok aynidir."

50. "Seit ich klein war, hatte mein Vater mir beigebracht, dass die Welt schlecht ist. Die Welt ist schlecht, und der Mensch ist auch schlecht. Trau keinem, geh nicht mit Fremden und so weiter. Das hatten mir meine Eltern erzählt, das hatten mir meine Lehrer erzählt, und das Fernsehen erzählte es auch. Wenn man Nachrichten guckt: Der Mensch ist schlecht. Wenn man Spiegel TV guckt: Der Mensch ist schlecht. Und vielleicht stimmte das ja auch, und der Mensch war zu 99 Prozent schlecht. Aber das Seltsame war, dass Tschick und ich auf unserer Reise fast ausschließlich dem einen Prozent begegneten, das nicht schlecht war. Da klingelt man nachts um vier irgendwen aus dem Bett, weil man gar nichts von ihm will, und er ist superfreundlich und bietet auch noch seine Hilfe an. Auf so was sollte man in der Schule vielleicht auch mal hinweisen, damit man nicht völlig davon überrascht wird."
